Subject: [Prime] 41st Mersenne Prime reported!

The newly reported prime is genuine.  The user has sent in his last savefile.
I reran the final 15,000 iterations and rediscovered the prime!!

Congratulations to all GIMPS participants on our 7th Mersenne prime!

The official different hardware, different software test has not begun.  This
test should take a month, after which we'll announce the exponent.
